Verse 11:11

اِلَّا الَّذِيۡنَ صَبَرُوۡا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِؕ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ لَهُمۡ مَّغۡفِرَةٌ وَّاَجۡرٌ كَبِيۡرٌ‏

Except those who are steadfast in adversity and prosperity, and work to improve human potential. For them is the protection of forgiveness and a great reward. [A'maal Saaleh = Deeds that increase the individual and collective potential of a society = Helping people = Improving the environment = Fulfilling others' needs = Contributing to the society]

Verse 11:12

فَلَعَلَّكَ تَارِكٌۢ بَعۡضَ مَا يُوۡحٰٓى اِلَيۡكَ وَضَآٮِٕقٌ ۢ بِهٖ صَدۡرُكَ اَنۡ يَّقُوۡلُوۡا لَوۡلَاۤ اُنۡزِلَ عَلَيۡهِ كَنۡزٌ اَوۡ جَآءَ مَعَهٗ مَلَكٌ​ ؕ اِنَّمَاۤ اَنۡتَ نَذِيۡرٌ​ ؕ وَاللّٰهُ عَلٰى كُلِّ شَىۡءٍ وَّكِيۡلٌ ؕ‏

Is it then conceivable (O Prophet), that you omit any part of what is being revealed to you (because the rejecters dislike it)? Or because you feel uncomfortable on their saying, 'Why has not a treasure been sent down for him, or an angel come with him?' You are but a warner, and it is God Who is the Custodian of all things

Verse 11:13

اَمۡ يَقُوۡلُوۡنَ افۡتَـرٰٮهُ​ ؕ قُلۡ فَاۡتُوۡا بِعَشۡرِ سُوَرٍ مِّثۡلِهٖ مُفۡتَرَيٰتٍ وَّ ادۡعُوۡا مَنِ اسۡتَطَعۡتُمۡ مِّنۡ دُوۡنِ اللّٰهِ اِنۡ كُنۡتُمۡ صٰدِقِيۡنَ‏

Or they assert, 'He has forged it.' Say to them, 'Then bring ten Surahs like this, forged, and call on whomever you can other than God - if you are truthful!' [Or produce one Surah like this 2:23, 10:38]

Verse 11:14

فَاِلَّمۡ يَسۡتَجِيۡبُوۡا لَـكُمۡ فَاعۡلَمُوۡۤا اَنَّمَاۤ اُنۡزِلَ بِعِلۡمِ اللّٰهِ وَاَنۡ لَّاۤ اِلٰهَ اِلَّا هُوَ​ۚ فَهَلۡ اَنۡتُمۡ مُّسۡلِمُوۡنَ‏

And if they do not answer your call, then know that it has been revealed only with the knowledge of God, and that there is no god but He. Will you then submit to Him (be Muslims)?'

Verse 11:15

مَنۡ كَانَ يُرِيۡدُ الۡحَيٰوةَ الدُّنۡيَا وَ زِيۡنَتَهَا نُوَفِّ اِلَيۡهِمۡ اَعۡمَالَهُمۡ فِيۡهَا وَهُمۡ فِيۡهَا لَا يُبۡخَسُوۡنَ‏

Whoever cares for (no more than) the short term gains and glitter of the worldly life, We shall repay for them their deeds herein without the least reduction. [17:18]

Verse 11:16

اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ الَّذِيۡنَ لَـيۡسَ لَهُمۡ فِىۡ الۡاٰخِرَةِ اِلَّا النَّارُ​ ​ۖ  وَحَبِطَ مَا صَنَعُوۡا فِيۡهَا وَبٰطِلٌ مَّا كَانُوۡا يَعۡمَلُوۡنَ‏

But (since they did not invest in the life to come), for them is nothing but fire of regret in the Hereafter. All that they have contrived here is vain, and worthless is all that they did. [Following one's own desires is the inevitable consequence of disregarding Permanent Values]

Verse 11:17

اَفَمَنۡ كَانَ عَلٰى بَيِّنَةٍ مِّنۡ رَّبِّهٖ وَيَتۡلُوۡهُ شَاهِدٌ مِّنۡهُ وَمِنۡ قَبۡلِهٖ كِتٰبُ مُوۡسٰٓى اِمَامًا وَّرَحۡمَةً​  ؕ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ يُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ بِهٖ​ ؕ وَمَنۡ يَّكۡفُرۡ بِهٖ مِنَ الۡاَحۡزَابِ فَالنَّارُ مَوۡعِدُهٗ​ ۚ فَلَا تَكُ فِىۡ مِرۡيَةٍ مِّنۡهُ​ اِنَّهُ الۡحَـقُّ مِنۡ رَّبِّكَ وَلٰـكِنَّ اَكۡثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ‏

Can they (those who look for material gains alone) be like those who take their stand on clear evidence from their Lord and to whom a witness from Him recites and works on it? (They have the Prophet as a witness who correlates God's signs in the Universe with His verses and establishes the System.) Also, they have the scripture of Moses since before it, a standard of guidance and grace. (It foretold the advent of the Final Messenger; Deuteronomy 18:15-18.) They choose to believe in it. As for those who league together (in opposition) rejecting the truth, the fire is their appointed place. And so, harbor no doubt; most certainly this is the truth from your Lord, even though most people do not believe it. ['Tilawat' = Reciting and following the Qur'an. 'Imam' = Standard of truth = Literally, the plumb-line = A trustworthy leader, human or book = Authority = Decisive means]

Verse 11:18

وَمَنۡ اَظۡلَمُ مِمَّنِ افۡتَـرٰى عَلَى اللّٰهِ كَذِبًا​ ؕ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ يُعۡرَضُوۡنَ عَلٰى رَبِّهِمۡ وَ يَقُوۡلُ الۡاَشۡهَادُ هٰٓؤُلَاۤءِ الَّذِيۡنَ كَذَبُوۡا عَلٰى رَبِّهِمۡ​ ۚ اَلَا لَـعۡنَةُ اللّٰهِ عَلَى الظّٰلِمِيۡنَۙ‏

Who can be a greater wrongdoer than the one who invents a lie about God? Such will be brought before their Lord, and the witnesses will say, 'These are the ones who lied about their Lord.' God's rejection is the due of all those who displace right with wrong. [The clergy have tampered with previous scriptures, and they will keep doing it. 2:79, 2:101, 3:77-78, 5:48, 6:113, 6:138-139, 9:34, 22:52]

Verse 11:19

الَّذِيۡنَ يَصُدُّوۡنَ عَنۡ سَبِيۡلِ اللّٰهِ وَيَبۡغُوۡنَهَا عِوَجًا ؕ وَهُمۡ بِالۡاٰخِرَةِ هُمۡ كٰفِرُوۡنَ‏

They are the ones who hinder people from the path of God, and seek to make it crooked. Thus they practically disbelieve in the life Hereafter.

Verse 11:20

اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ لَمۡ يَكُوۡنُوۡا مُعۡجِزِيۡنَ فِى الۡاَرۡضِ وَمَا كَانَ لَهُمۡ مِّنۡ دُوۡنِ اللّٰهِ مِنۡ اَوۡلِيَآءَ​ ۘ يُضٰعَفُ لَهُمُ الۡعَذَابُ​ ؕ مَا كَانُوۡا يَسۡتَطِيۡعُوۡنَ السَّمۡعَ وَمَا كَانُوۡا يُبۡصِرُوۡنَ‏

They will not escape on earth. And they will have no protectors against God. Double suffering will be imposed on them since they could not bear to hear (the truth) nor could see (it).
